Background - A sport played widely in Europe and Asia since the late 18th/early 19th century. More dominantly played by females in America, it is a sport played by both men and women. As the years passed, the equipment for this sport has evolved greatly. Known simply as 'hockey' in countries other than America, field hockey is often denounced as a 'girly sport', a predominanly lesbian sport, or as not really hockey. However, none of this is true. It is an olympic sport, and is among the top 5 most played sports in the world.

The Game - The game consists of two teams of 11 (including a goalie), trying to get the ball into the opposite goalcage. There are two 35-minute halves in collegiate and international play, and two 30-minute halves in varsity high school play. Field hockey is known to have alot of fouls, but most are called just to keep the game safe. Many different types of hits are allowed, such as drives, pushes, flicks, scoops, drags, chokes, slaps, and chips.

Equipment - The sticks are flat on one side, which is the only side you may hit the small, hard, plastic ball with. The stick may be composed of wood or of composite material, usually a combination of glassfibre, carbon, and aramide.
Field hockey is a very fun and competitive sport.

Definitely one of the coolest sports ever. Played by the most in-shape, athletic, and determined girls. Involves a stick (wood or composite), a cork and plastic ball, and a goal cage. Played with sometimes 7, sometimes 11 players of the field including the goalkeeper.
The goalkeeper has got to be the bravest, awesomest, hottest girl ever to stand in goal like that and let heavy balls be shot at her. Simply awesome.
Stupid person 1: woah, what's that sport called? it looks soo awesome. they're uniforms kick ass!

Stupid person 2: dude, i have no idea, but those are some pretty hot determined looking girls over there.

Awesome Educated person: Dumbasses, that's just the best sport in the world right there, with the hottest, awesomest girls ever created. Damn.

** All in awe**

Kick ass sport played mainly by girls (in America) who aren't afraid to run around in skirts and get hit by field hockey sticks.

NOT played by all lesbians. In fact, all the girls i know who play it have sexy boyfriends.

A game in which 11 players on each team play for two 35 minute halfs. similar in many ways to soccer. ecept players cannot kick the ball. sticks are used (similar to ice hockey sticks)

The most grueling, intense, rigorous sport ever created. 11 girls fight as hard as they can, run as fast as they can, and get past as many defenders as they can before driving the orange ball into the cage (aka- goal). It is extremely demanding, yet extremely rewarding.

alternate defintion:
rage in the cage

A difficult, physically exhuasting sport played by aggressive and determined girls and sometimes guys. There are usually 11 players on the field (right back, center back, left back, right mid, center mid, left mid, right wing, right link, left link, left wing and goalie.) The point of the game is to drive the plastic/cork ball into the opposing teams' goal. Those who say field hockey isn't a real sport, you are truly ignorant. You must be able to endure the constant sprinting and be able to stop, dribble, slap, push and drive the ball for long distances. You must be able to endure the constant pain of places where you've been hitten by a stick or ball and sprains. Field Hockey players DO NOT play because we want to feel important, nor is it for the entertainment of male watchers. Players play for the love of the game, which is the only way you can stand 6 month hockey season (pre-season starting in June and the season ending in November.) The game has nothing to do with sexuallity, out of the 50 some people on my team, every single one of us is straight. Although it is true that many Field Hockey players wear skirts to play, some wear shorts, meaning the game has nothing to do with wanting to see other girls in short skirts. If anybody disrespecting Field Hockey played for just one game, you would be amazed by people who can stand it for a whole season.
Stephaine: What are you doing after school?
Julia: I've got field hockey practice for the next three hours.
Stephanie: Man, you still play that? It was so hard I had to quit during pre-season. You must really love the sport, I respect that.

A fun sports game where girls run around hitting a hard small ball around with sticks on a field. It is the one of the best sports ever!
